American Bronze Foundry receives many questions about various aspects of the bronze sculpture casting process and things related to bronze. Here is a list of frequently asked questions and their answers. If you have a question that is not answered here, please send us an email or give us a call and we'll get an answer for you.
A: No, you don't even have to be an artist. American Bronze
Foundry's project consultants, design department, and in-house
sculptors will collaborate to bring your idea, concept, or
vision to life regardless of whether you are a sculptor or not.
A: Absolutely not! A mold can be made from just about anything. Bring us just about any object and we'll make a mold from it to cast a bronze version of it that will last many generations to come.
A: Not exactly. The difference between bronzing and cast bronze is vast. The bronzing of baby shoes is where you send off the shoes then they are dipped and coated with and in various chemicals to achieve a bronze like appearance and the original shoes are forever encased in that shell.
What we do here at American Bronze Foundry is we make a mold
from the original shoes and then cast a duplicate pair in bronze
therefore retaining the original shoes that are then accompanied
by a museum quality fine art bronze sculpture that will last
many lifetimes to come making them a perfect heirloom.
A: It certainly is! We have had numerous projects based on photographs, sketches, and illustrations -- and each customer was extremely pleased with the final outcome. If you haven't already, please take a look at our portfolio section to view some of our past works.
A: Yes. We offer a wide variety of granite, marble, a wood bases to compliment your sculpture that are hand-crafted by our skilled artisans. Although these are available, having a base in not always necessary as it is cast into the bronze itself or is being placed elsewhere in a specific location such a courtyard.
A: Yes. Anyone and everyone is welcome to visit the foundry as it is open to the general public. Group and individual tours are free, so if you're looking for something different for the family to do, call us to schedule a walk-through of our foundry and gallery! It's unlike anything you've ever seen or experienced before! We're conveniently located less than one mile west of the Sanford-Orlando International Airport so if you're traveling, don't miss out on the opportunity to see fine art bronze in the making.
A: Yes, you bought it - it's yours. The mold is yours to keep to either have stored here for later use, or to take with you and do as you please.
